Glenmorangie’s Soundform Fluid Bar @ North Atrium, The Gardens Mall and After Party @ Vertigo

On 20th April 2012, Glenmorangie Malaysia has unveiled the SOUNDFORM Fluid bar at the North Atrium, Gardens Mall..

SOUNDFORM Fluid – a stunning, sculptural bar that brings to life the ‘Unnecessarily Well Made’ philosophy advocated by Glenmorangie..

Officially unveiled at The Gardens in Mid Valley, the SOUNDFORM Fluid bar was designed by renowned architect and interior designer Philip Michael Wolfson for Glenmorangie, and it was inspired by the sonograph reading of the sound of Glenmorangie whisky being poured into a crystal glass..

The event was hosted by Joey G and the bar was well-presented in a few presentation videos shown on the TV screens around the area..

The showcase saw celebrities and single malt aficionados enjoy a night of appreciation as they savoured the ‘Unnecessarily Well Made’..

Thanks to Glenmorangie Ambassador Ben Ng, we had an informal whisky tasting session to unravel the complexity of the Glenmorangie range, from Glenmorangie Original, to La Santa, and lastly Astar..

The Original being the most low-end and Astar being the most high-end among these three, Astar is definitely the favourite amongst the crowd but it’s a tad too strong for me..

If I remembered correctly, Astar has a slight hint of honey smell, pretty fragrant, but still too strong for my palate..

Glenmorangie single malt whisky obtains its multi-layered aromas and kaleidoscopic flavours through maturation in fine oak casks, obtained from the Ozark Mountains..

While there are many perfectly good single malt whiskies matured in casks that  are re-used up to eight times, Glenmorangie goes the extra mile for that added elegance in its whisky by only ever using their casks twice..

At its Tain distillery in the Scottish Highlands, Glenmorangie employs the tallest whisky stills in Scotland, ensuring only the purest vapours are used in the spirit.

After which, the crowd adjourned to Vertigo for the after-party featuring US DJ duo Manufactured Superstars, who supplied a steady flow of house, dance and electro pop into the night..

Tiger Asian Music Festival 2012 @ Sunway Lagoon Surf Beach

On Saturday, 14th April 2012, the Sunway Lagoon Surf Beach was packed with more than 40,000 party goers, many of whom had managed to secure exclusive invites from Tiger’s website, Facebook page, as well as nationwide promotion at Tiger outlets for the Tiger Asian Music Festival 2012..

Due to overwhelming demands, Tiger had also given out additional 1,000 exclusive passes on 12th April, and all were snapped up in less than 2 hours!

The heavy downpour in the evening didn’t deter the people to go all out to have fun at all! I would say it’s probably due to the venue, Sunway Lagoon, a surf beach and water themed park, wet or not here we go!

The festival kickstarted with a blast, starting with Paul Wong and Wong Ka Keung of Beyond fame to get build up the hype from the beginning..

It’s all the familiar songs from the Beyond-era such as ‘Amani’ and ‘Gwong Fai Sui Yuet’..The 80′s babies would definitely know and sing along with Paul Wong..

A-Lin came off after that to perform some slow numbers and yet to keep the crowd well-entertained..

The strong 40,000 crowd from the dried-up surf beach all the way to the lockers area at the back..
